Barrow Clump Excavation 2017

Barrow Clump Excavation 2017
Barrow Clump was a long running excavation undertaken by Operation Nightingale and Wessex Archaeology on a Bronze Age monument or Barrow that was later reused during the Anglo Saxon period as a cemetery for their dead.

Previous excavations uncovered of 70 inhumations of various types with most containing grave goods such as beads, shield bosses, spears, broaches as unique drinking vessel and of course a sword. 

This project will be much less ambitious then previous excavations in its nature and scope, but we do expect to recover human remains that have been disturbed.

If you would like to be considered for this project then please email admin@breakinggroundheritage.org.uk  

This excavation will link in with the Anglo Saxon research project that we will be starting at the end of November.
